V-Ray is a complete interactive lighting, shading and rendering toolkit, giving you full control over the entire creative process, from real-time look development to the final frame.

V-Ray has been lining the bed of the visualization and rendering industry since the early days of computer generated graphics. Very few people who are even closely associated with computers and graphics technology know what Chaos Group's flagship software is, and how dominant it is in terms of user-base and capability.

Chaos Group has released V-Ray 5 for Autodesk Maya, the next major version of the production renderer - and the first of the next generation of updates to the entire V-Ray product family

The update radically reworks the V-Ray Frame Buffer, adds a new material library and asset browser, and makes a range of other key improvements to V-Ray materials and the V-Ray GPU render engine.
